    Looking for some help. I am installing led lights in the foot wells. I am trying to tap into the cargo light on the drivers side next to the drivers seat under the kick panel. I can not find the wire for the life of me. I'm thinking if I rip the dash off i might be able to see which wire it is? I have a 16 pro. Newandimprovedron as well as Pudge were trying to help me out but nobody had a pic of the actual wire.

    Look under the driver side rear passenger door scuff plate.

    The one on the right.... There are a couple of them that are thinner and dark gray in color. You may have to test both to find the cargo light circuit wire.

    look behind the little light that is already installed. I did this a few months ago, pretty easy.

    You just tap into the foot well light circuit? Im trying to get into the cargo so I can use the cargo light switch to toggle on off as well as working with lock and unlock

    I'll give that a try. I think the posi taps I'm using are too big. They Arent breaking through the small wires they miss them or crush the side. I got the blue ones. Thank you Sir.

    Sounds like they are too big. The correct size will just fit the wire your tapping in the cap slot. I looked at some of mine and you will probably need one that fits wires in the area of 18-22 gauge wires. Sometimes you can get an assortment of PosiTaps in one package.

    Glad you got it figured out, Rich! Did you check to see that the wire you tapped loses power after the delay/holding the door switch/button in? The rest should be a piece of cake!

    That is great! Sounds like you are good to go, Sir! Toyota must have changed the wire color between my 2015 and your 2016.
